Brief History of CSIE
Established in 2003, the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE) began with the undergraduate program. In 2012, the Master of Science program was founded. Each year the department admits about 40 undergraduates and 10 Master’s students. The department also offers a four-year evening undergraduate program for extension education.
The CSIE Department highlights educational programs that combine theory with practice. We emphasize the importance of a relevant engineering design experience that is integrated across the curriculum to develop in our students an understanding of the relationships between theory and practice. There is also a strong emphasis on the humanities, engineering ethics and the development of an appreciation for societal issues. Currently, we encompass two major disciplines: Mobile Networking and Communications (MNC), and Multimedia Technologies (MT). The mission is to educate students through a rigorous curriculum of theory and application that develops the ability to solve problems, individually and in teams; to provide our students with a solid foundation in the computer and information engineering field that prepares them for lifelong careers and professional growth.

Faculty and Facilities
The faculty consists of eleven outstanding members; five of them are Full Professors. The department has several well-equipped laboratories for teaching and researching purposes, including Digital System Lab, Advanced RISC Machine Lab, Internet Lab, Networks Management Lab, and Human-Machine Interface Lab. In addition, we have two computer classrooms equipped with more than 100 advanced desktop computers.
Multimedia Systems Laboratory
  • This laboratory builds multimedia hardware and software to combine multimedia elements, primarily conducting research regarding multimedia information hiding and authentication, advanced image processing, computer graphics, and related applications. The laboratory is also involved in the development of algorithms and program implementation. This laboratory enables learning how to think independently, develop problem-solving methods, report achievements, and write dissertations.
Natural Language Processing and AI Systems Laboratory
  • Laboratory supervisor: Feng-Long Huang
    Research direction:
  1. Natural language processing in native languages in Taiwan:
    Chinese to Hakka (Sixian dialect) speech synthesis system, into which Chinese sentences or articles are input to produce Hakka speech based on sentence analysis modules, rhythm information modules, and speech synthesis modules.
  2. Internet of Things system integration and development:
    The Hao Ke Pinyin Input Method: Users input Hakka vocabulary or Hakka phrases in abbreviated pinyin and choose outputs; the Play button can play the pronunciation of Hakka vocabulary words or phrases; Hakka Language Learning System: converts into Hakka dialects and plays the results out loud.
  3. Taiwan Hakka Language Smart Home:
    Currently only in the Sixian and Hailu dialects, this AI system is aimed at building an integrated home and intelligent environment for elderly Hakka speakers and enabling them to control their home appliances using Hakka dialects; for instance, commands for turning lights on and off, opening and closing doors, as well as calling for help. The system responds in Hakka languages to achieve an interactive home scenario and build the first Hakka-language intelligent home in Taiwan.
Application of the Smart Data Sciences Laboratory
  • This laboratory currently engages in topical research into the practical applications of big data and information science, the practical applications of AI, applications of the Internet of Things, service-type AI robots, AI autonomous vehicles, intelligent voice commands, and the applications of embedded AI edge computing systems.
Wireless and Mobile Networks Laboratory
  • The Wireless and Mobile Networks Laboratory explores wireless network and mobile computing technologies as its main directions of research and development, with a research focus on the Internet of Things, wireless sensor networks, telecommunication networks, and cloud computing. Research into the Internet of Things mainly explores topics on energy-conservation and applications. The wireless sensor networks component primarily explores efficient data transmission and data-gathering methods. The telecommunication networks component discusses next-generation wireless communication network technologies, and the cloud computing component discusses technologies for cloud computing.
    The research topics are as follows:
  1. Wireless network technologies and applications
  2. Mobile computing technologies and applications
  3. Internet of Things technologies and applications
  4. Wireless sensor network technologies and applications
  5. Telecommunication network technologies and applications
  6. Cloud computing technologies and applications
